Samsung Galaxy S Duos Review
With a battery capacity of around 1,500 mAh we didn’t have any issues getting through the day and more on the Galaxy S Duos. Talk time is rated at 12.8 hours on 2G, and 8.7 on 3G.
The Samsung Galaxy S Duos is first and foremost a dual-SIM Android device, and should be judged as one. Let’s make it clear - if dual-SIM is not a must for you, there are much cheaper and better options than the S Duos.
In the dual-SIM world, its closest rivals are the HTC Desire V coming at virtually the same price and the more affordable Acer Liquid Gallant Duo. The HTC phone is thinner, but for the most part matches the S Duos, so it’s a matter of picking between HTC’s industrial design and Sense skin, and the utilitarian Samsung plastic with TouchWiz.
On its own, the Samsung Galaxy S Duos is a solid mid-ranger. We were disappointed by the lack of 720p video recording, and slightly unhappy with the thicker than average body and cheap plastic. On the flipside of things, the device handled itself well, with smooth performance for the most part, and meeting our expectations in most areas. And this outweighs its cons for the most part.
Samsung Galaxy Duos Video Review:
- Dual-SIM functionality well implemented
- ICS runs fairly smoothly
- Plastic on it feels very cheap
- Single-core processor is dated
- No 720p video recording
